It Rose Up: A Selection of Lost Irish Fantasy Stories edited by Jack Fennell

Trade Paperback – Tramp Press – Nov 2022 – 263 pages

A mystical battle between foreign gods and local saints is unleashed as idols are mistaken for garden ornaments; an ambiguous wizard spies on his neighbours from an invisible tower; a cursed duelling pistol influences its owners to commit suicide. With strange combinations of occultism, electricity, magic and playfully Biblical archetypes, the fifteen darkly funny stories in this book illuminate a side of Irish literary history that is often overlooked. Edited and introduced by Jack Fennell, this collection of lesser-known works of classic Irish fantasy includes stories by Moira O’Neill, Dora Sigerson Shorter, Charles Stuart Villiers, Charlotte McManus and George Egerton.
